The ranking is the first of its kind by The Times Higher Education Supplement to compare the world’s top universities. Five indicators have been chosen to reflect strength in teaching, research and international reputation. The first performance indicator, weighted at half of the total score, is based on peer review. Some 1,300academics in 88 countries were asked to name the top institutions in the areas and subjects on which they felt able to make an informed judgment.
Another 20% is accounted for by a ranking of research impact, which is calculated by measuring citations per faculty member. A further 20% is a measure of faculty-to-student ratio. This indicator, according to The Times, is a “simple and robust one that captures a university’s commitment to teaching”. The other two measures, each at 5% of the total, are designed to encapsulate a university’s international orientation: percentage of overseas students; and percentage of international faculty.
Highest on the list of top 10 Chinese universities in the Greater China area is Beijing University (17), followed by Hong Kong University (39), Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (42), Tsing Hua University (61), Chinese University of Hong Kong (84), National Taiwan University (102), China University of Science and Technology (154), Nanjing University (192), Fudan University (195), and City University of Hong Kong (198).
